Edward F. Searles High Scliool 1917 



HIS is an account of the hackstage occurrences duriui* the rehears- 
als of our play, 'Tlie Rising deneration." The time covers that 
period hetwcen autumn 191 1 and summer 1917. The i)hice is the 
ivy-covered huihiing, Edward F. Searles High School. 

In the fall of 1944. Director Carleton Skillings announced that tl.e com- 
pany would he taking on amateurs. In Septemher, at the stage doors there 
gathered from the near and far corners of Methuen many anxious, stage- 
struck youths. All were l>ewildered hy tlie tasks before them, and all had 
heard of the pleasures accompanying the rehearsals of each production. 
At our first meeting, we voted that "Excelsior" would he the motto of tlie 
cast. Our choice showed ambition, for "P2xcelsior" means "Onward and 
Upward." Leon Bassett and Shirley Davis, as president and vice-president, 
became our leading man and lady. Barbara Thwaites and Tluirley Fitz- 
gerald undertook the supporting roles ot secretary and treasurer respect- 
ively. As representatives to the Actors' council we elected Lester (Ireen- 
wood and Jack Andonian. While the sophomore roles were being re- 
hearsed, the senior actors and actresses gave a reception at which the am- 
ateurs were guests of honor. The excitement of this social event created 
sophomore dreams of the days when we, as seniors, would welcome the 
newcomers to the stage. Kehearsals were resumed, and at the end of the 
year, the seniors left the company. 

In the fall of 1945, the rehearsals of our play, "The Rising deneration," 
were again underway. These junior actors were very proud, and oi-gan- 
ized for the year with Leon and Shirley in the leading roles. Barbara 
Thwaites continued as secretary; Donald Oabtree became treasurer. Our 
representatives to the actors' council for this year were Lester (Ireenwood, 
Polly Marchand, and Edward Rlaine. After the Christmas holidays, we 
chose a black onyx ring which symbolized our company and soon won the 
praise of all. Work continued, but the pleasures we had while learning 
our parts will alwaj's remain in our memories. Toward the end of the sec- 
ond year, one of the members of the cast, Rcrnice Scott, was awarded a 
very high honor. The Washington-Franklin medal, for excellence in 
American history, was presented to her by Miss Southworth at a general 
assembly. 

Returning again to our rehearsals in the autumn of 1()1(), we, as seniors, 
realized that this was our last chance to prepare for the June performance, 
known as graduation. Being well pleased with the way that they ha(i 
served the class as president and vice-president, we again chose Leon and 
Shirley. Barbara continued in the essential supporting role of secretary

while Kdward lilaiiie became treasurer. Lester (Ireenwood, Norma Wil- 
son, C.atherine Winn, and Kenneth Wiliiian were chosen as our represen- 
tatives to the actors' council. Rememhering the vow we had made when 
we were amateurs, we |)lanned for the soi)honiore reception which proved 
to he an enjoyable social event. A few months later, a group of talented 
cast nuMnbers entertained the rest of the company and their friends by 
putting on the play, "A C.ase of Springtime." Another pleasure, which 
came a few weeks later, was the senior party. Our rehearsals were con- 
tinued under the careful leadership of our capable directors. 

A few cast nuMubers, having been supervised by the art director, Mr. 
Joseph Melia, entered the (Ireater Lawrence poster conlst. All were proud 
that lirst, third, and fourth i)rizes were won by members of our senior 
group: Harl)ara Fitzgerald, Norma Wilson, and Laurel Sykes. Soon the 
invitations were out for the Military Ball. In the colorfully decorated 
('.cntral School hall, one March evening, tiie boys in their snai)py uniforms 
featured a competitive drill. Dancing followed this exhibition, and the 
hall was tilled with gayety. A few weeks later, a group of the girls under 
the leadership of the girls' athletic director. Miss Dorothy CJiadwick, pro- 
duced a very much admired demonstration. The roller-skating act, the 
tap and modern dance routines, and the scpiare dancing sets were the 
highligiits of this entertainment. The girls participating in these various 
performances worked almost continuously with numerous practice peri- 
ods in addition to their regular studies. 

Other activities brought recognition also. Honors were bestowed on 
William ('hadwick by the Sons of the American Revolution, and Hazel 
I ttley was honored by the Daugliters of the American Revolution for good 
citizenship during their three years with the company. At a general as- 
send)ly hehi late in April, Ikity Hogarth and Ruth Mann, because of their 
high ranks, were named as N'aledictorian and Salutatorian. In June, our 
last party, which we called the Senior Prom, was a gala affair. The boys 
in their smart tuxedos and tiie girls in their colorful gowns enjoyed an 
evening of dancing. 

Our rehearsals end; the play is ready for production. We, the cast of 
"The Rising (leneration," having been guided expertly for three years, are 
sure that witii the faith of our directors and friends supporting us, we can- 
not fail, ^^'e will go "Onward and Upward."

SCENE I 

Catherine: Dave Huston, what a coincidence meeting you in France! 
Are you getting a new coitfure by IShirgaret Derstephanian and Barbara 
Fawcett at MlJe. Boisjoly's Fashion Shoppe, or did you come to take 
Nancy Thomas and Ceila Enright, her fashion designers, to lunch at 
Ritter's "Ye Old Tea Kettle?" 

. Dave: No new coiflFure for me today, Catherine. I'm on more impor- 
tant business. Through the endless efforts of Selectmen Leon Bassett, 
Carl Woekel, and Melvin Dorsey in Methuen, our new high school de- 
signed by Edward Johnson and Donald Coelho was completed, and I was 
sent to get you, so that together we could assemble all our classmates for 
the first reunion in the new high school. 

Catherins: I remember reading in "Le Bleu at Blanc," a French news- 
paper translated into English by Ann Caspar, that contractors Lombardi 
and MacLeod had trouble when Gardner Ladd and Donald Hinds went on 
strike. They demanded longer working hours. In Nancy Calloway's 
column, "Just Wait and See," she prophecied that there would be a re- 
union soon. She is usually right. 

Dave: Admirals Orlando and Zytkewicz loaned us a French Corvette 
converted into a yaclit by Hajjar, Hartung, Higgins, and Haigh Corpora- 
tion for transportation. Their corporation is doing a flourishing business. 
Each member has two secretaries (one for each knee.) Eddie can't seem 
to make up his mind if he prefers (iladys or Susan Holland for his private 
secretary, and Bobby is quite confused between Marion Hajjar and Helen 
Morency. 

Catherine: Are we stopping at Bamford Downs on our way home? 
Marion Lippold is the head horse-trainer there. She is assisted by (leorge 
Saba and George Kacin. Johnny Mushow and Frank Keycs are the lead- 
ing jockeys. 

Dave: We'll stop there, but our first stay will be at Aram Bogosian's 
famous stamp shop. His book-keepers are Alice Lutz and Barbara Roth 
and his secretary is Lillian Saab. In order to attract more trade Aram has 
Eleanor Colpitis, Mary Bartolotta, and Mary Fisichella for clerks. 

Catherine: Then we must stop at (^raven's "Vanities" where Bobby 
Boynes is the dancing teacher for the noted "Atomics," namely Pauline 
Marcband, Barbara Ravgiala, Dorothy Peary and Janice Roby. Oh! and 
it would never do to leave Jerry Mastorakis and Frances Maloof behind. 
They ai'e starring in the film, "The Perfect Lover." They would never 
forgive us.

Dave: Well, Catherine, let's t^o to the dock and hoard ship. When we 
arrive in the United States, we will go directly to the reunion of the class 
of '17 in the new high school. 

SCENE II 

Catherine: Here we are home again. No wonder that Methuen is 
World-renowned with this magnificent Merrill Highway. Willy certainly 
must have received co-operation from his engineers David Smith, Arthur 
Slack, and Philip Morency. I imagine that he kept his trucks and equip- 
ment in A-1 condition at Wilman's Service Station where Charlie Bedard, 
Reginald Diodati, and (leorge Hohhs are the mechanics. 

Dave: Yes, and Merrill's Highway is policed under the careful vigi- 
lance of Andrew Morse, Riclianl Hoehn, Frank Worthv, and Arthur Vog- 
ler, "The Fearless Four." 

Catherine: Look, the factory over there with the name "Shoulders" in 
neon lights is owned and operated hy Schuhert and Devaney. They spe- 
cialize in making shoulders to fit any man's woman's, or child's desire. 

Dave: Hill had a little trouhle the other day when his clerks (iertrude 
Lister, Ann Ward, Pauline Cagnon, and Valerie French had an argument 
with Joyce Hrown, his private secretary, over the policy that the customer 
is always right. 

Catherine: I heard that "^^'i(^" had quite a prohlem when it came to 
selecting a model for his startling discovei'v, the haloon shoulder pad. 
Crahlree's Model Agency sent up Rita Hurke, Barhara Hurrell, Jane 
Bartley, and Pliyllis Ott. "Wid" was so undecitled as to which he pre- 
ferred tliat he kept all of them. Donald is doing all right for himself. He 
has Rita Ippolito and Doris Mack for secretaries. 

Dave: See that store with the diamonds and ruhies in the window dis- 
play. Betty Duemmling and Rita Hanna are the proprietors. They started 
from scratch, and now Ihey have a thriving husiness for themselves. They 
have two secretaries, Yvonne Staelens and Barhara Stevens, and a filer, 
(iloria Daigle. Their competent clerks are Hazel Nicholson and Irma 
Rock. Betty Child and Theresa Zieha do the heautiful window displays. 

Catherine: Why, there's Solomon's, the shop of the singing barber. 
I surmise that such i)olitical-minded i)ers()ns as John Sapienza, Joseph 
Feather, Jack Andonian, and Fred Smith meet there to discuss Town, 
State, Federal, and International problems. 

SCENE III 

Dave: See the magnificent landscajje of the new high school! The 
custodians, Raymond Hunniford and Kenneth Keamy t'jke excellent care 
of the grounds. Everyone must be here now, for there's Jake Keefe, pres- 
ident of the Pepsi-Cola Company, with his two assistants, Robert Ryan

and Rohert Shdcr. They always were the last ones to arrive anywhere. 
I guess they'll never change, even with Edith Rotondo, Faith Potter, and 
Arlene Koza, their secretaries, hustling them ahout. 

Catherine: It's no wonder that everyone showed up. Despo CJiatis 
and her all-girl orchestra will furnish the music for dancing. Despo has 
Doris Payers on trumpet, Harhara Thwaites and Norma Wilson at the twin 
pianos, Ruth Kenyon on guitar, and Patricia Quinn and Hernice Wilson 
in the string section. Claire Corey and Joan Assaf are her vocalists. 

Dave: An excellent entertainment has also heen arranged. For the 
henefit of the men, Stephen Raynowska and Xick Aznoian arc staging a 
boxing match, and (ieorge Haykal and (lerald Nazarian are showing their 
skill at weight lifting. Irving Lowe, our own "Methuen Tibhett," is sing- 
ing a solo. John Donigan an<l Rosalie DeHurra, better known as "Rex, 
the Singing Cowgirl," are playing their guitars. The highlights of the 
show are Theresa Dowd and Anna (iiragosian doing their roller-skating 
specialty. 

Catherine: Why look! There's Hobby Harris! I understand that he's 
a clergyman now and has his own parish with Kemieth (lammons and 
Albert Graham as his curates. 

Dave: There's Arthur DelDuca. He's a pitcher for the Red Sox. By 
the way, have you heard that Michael Bedrosian is teaching child psy- 
chology? 

Catherine: A la Mr. Hanigan? Elliott Cooke, are coal and oil magnate, 
is here tonight with his three secretaries, Carolyn Small, Kathleen Hayes, 
and Rita Fortin. They all came in Sam Patti's taxi. 

Dave: I saw Ann Andonian, the dietician, in the cafeteria, and she 
was telling me that the milkmen are Al Rotondo and Cussy Moynihan. 
Donald Lambert is the egg-man and Arthur is the butcher. 

Catherine: I just saw Pauline Balezentes and she informed me that 
she and Lester (ireenwood had established their own mortuary. They 
are very ably assisted by Shirley Davis and Faye MacDonald. 

Dave: That reminds me. The staff from the hospital just stopped in 
on their relief hour. Doctors Harold Allen, Edward Blaine, and Richard 
Heidenreich were saying that they purchase all their medical supplies 
either from Dianne Speed, the chemist, or Thomas Holroyd, the druggist. 
The nurses, Ruth Maim, Lorraine Lowell. Madeleine Robillard and Shirle}' 
Briggs were praising Barbara Fitzgerald and Laurel Sykes for painting 
the murals in the children's ward. The medical secretaries at the hospital 
are Lois Laurie and Sally Cole. 

Catherine: Virginia Doerr is the receptionist at the hospital. She said 
that Vivian (ianem and Barbara (iray are very generous with their flower 
donations from their greenhouse where Lewis Partington is a gardener.

and Joyce Johnson and Hazel Tttley are the athletic directors for the girls. 
Hilda Wilson is the secretary for this wonderful school. 

('atherine: And did you notice that liernice Scott is teaching the first

mentary grades of the l)uilding nearby? 

Dave: Why there's Vincent Rafferty, president of the hank! His sec-

and Angle Mauceri. Tiiey're leaving now. 1 wonder where they're going. 

C.atherine: Don't you know that we all have reservations at Eddie 
Maciariello's "Rendezvous," after the reunion? Hilly CJiadwick and his

Ever since Pearl Harbor, the hopes and thoughts of the people of this 
country have been centered increasingly upon creating at last a world 
organization which would be endowed with the power and the will this 
time truly to maintain the peace. 

The United Nations Conference on International Organization met in 
San Francisco on April 25, 19 15. At that time the war in Europe had 
lasted for more than five years; the war in the Pacific, for more than three; 
the war in China, for almost eight. The United States alone suffered cas- 
ualties of a million men; some dead, some wounded, others captured or 
missing. 

In the first ^^'^orld War, the cost in destruction was less only than that 
of the more recent conflict. The Conference of the United Nations was 
called to prevent a third recurrence of a great disaster. It had one purpose 
and one purpose only: to draft the charter of an international organiza- 
tion through which the nations of the world might work together in their 
common hope for peace. 

At this conference, Edward R. Stettinius .Ir., chairman of the United 
States delegation, forcibly stated, "If we are earnestly determined, as I 
believe we are, that the innumerable dead of two great holocausts shall 
not have died in vain, we must act in concert with the other nations of 
the world to bring about the peace for which these dead gave up their 
lives." 

Unity of strength and purpose is basically essential to the success of the 
United Nations. The people of the world, in order to revive their faith in 
fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, 
and in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small, 
must tolerantly work together in the concentrated effort to accomplish 
this aim. 

A living example of successfully working together is offered by the 
staunch ivy vine. Tiny tendrils work together to keep the individual ivy 
plants clinging to the wall and each small plant does its share to sustain 
the whole vine.

In a similar way, inaiiy of the nations of the world have united for the 
purpose of estal)lishing and niaintaining an everlastini* peace. With the 
never-failint; help of Almighty (lod, the people of the world will ultimate- 
ly attaiji this goal. 



"Our Father, (rod, from out whose hand 
The centuries fall like grains of sand. 
We meet today, united, free, 
And loyal to our land and Thee, 
To thank Thee for the era done 
And trust Thee for the coming one "

C.ouncil is composed of four seniors, three juniors, and two sopli- 
omores; all are elected by the popular vote of each class from which they 
are chosen. The duties of this important group are: to prepare the social 
calendar of the year, to decide perplexing problems, and to act as a me- 
dium between the students and the faculty. 

This year our Student (Council has consisted of — seniors: Lester (Ireen-

league. Some of the energetic girls of the class of '47, wishing to

the girls not only bowled, but also set up their own pins. Such ambilion!
